Campamento Contra las Cenizas de Carbón en Peñuelas

Campamento Contra las Cenizas de Carbón en Peñuelas (Encampment Against Coal Ashes in Peñuelas) fights to eradicate the practice of dumping toxic ash from coal in local landfills. The group formed to demand the closure of the islands’ only coal-fired plant, owned by Applied Energy Systems (AES), and to expose the health and environmental threats impacting vulnerable communities like the southern town of Peñuelas.
